An exciting new occurrence is happening in Indian fashion. Resort wear is emerging as new fashionable garments. There are a variety of different factors that might explain this new fad seeing as there aren’t that many beaches in India. Firstly there are more Indians then ever before travelling the world. In 2013, 15 millions Indians travelled. Also interestingly was the fact that the most popular holidays were beach holidays and in particular beach holidays in Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore.
Internationally resort wear has always been a key feature of a western fashionista’s summer wardrobe, however with the increasing Indian desire to go on beach holidays, this fashion garment is becoming very popular in India and Asia. Resort wear, for the last two years, has featured flowing fabrics and flirty hemlines for comfortable silhouettes. Every year the resort wear becomes more textured as more cultures contribute to the fashionable clothing. Tie-dye fabrics are commonly used as well as digital prints and colour blocking. The innovations in resort wear means that they are now appropriate to wear for formal occasions such as destination weddings. We can see hot pants, kaftans and ponchos being worn.
